VOTE: Adventurer of the Year – Roz Savage

01/03/2011

Roz Savage has rowed solo across the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. In 2011 she’ll tackle the Indian Ocean. She’s a finalist in National Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year contest.  Learn about Roz below – and be sure to cast your vote.

Before she rowed across two oceans, Roz Savage was a management consultant, working 14-hour days in London. “There has to be something more adventurous,” she thought. “I’m not getting any younger. Why not get on with it?” So she did. In 2005, Savage paddled the Atlantic in 103 days, battling several storms in one of the worst seas on record. This year, paddling to increase awareness of the ocean’s plight and show the extraordinary impact one person can have when they set their mind to something, the 42-year-old completed an 8,000-mile, three-part row across the Pacific. After 250 days and 2.5 million oarstrokes, she reached Madang, Papua New Guinea, on June 3, becoming the first woman ever to solo row across the largest ocean in the world. In 2011, Savage will set out to row 5,000 miles across the Indian Ocean.

Vote For Roz as the “Adventurer of the Year” (Vote every day for your favorite adventurer until January 15, 2011. The People’s Choice Adventurer of the Year will be announced in February 2011.) This takes less than a minute!
